    is anyone gonna try? I've been working hard on a solo disc for a while now, and it's a borderline nightmare to get my drumming skills up to par. i could track drums right now and use drumagog and some editing and have a good sounding disc. but i'm motivated by my ego and want it to be amazing and as natural sounding as possible. i want people to hear it and thing "wow, he performed all the instuments himself!". but playing the double kick parts clean and consistent is an art that sometimes feels light years away, and the fast tom fills have nowhere near the power as the slow ones so there's a huge change in dynamics with the toms. and i just realized i have bad stick control when i hit 1 specific crash cymbal, so the cymbal rebounds and hits the stick again as i'm trying to get it back to the hats... and that's on top of trying to stay consisitent throughout an entire song, so i sometimes wonder if my nightmares will end up to the beat of a click track someday.

    Anyhoo, i just did a quick tracking in which i tried to make my drummicing skills a bit better.
    Got the kick alot better and the whole alot more in phase, allthough i'm still not satisfied.
    Here is a sample with only subtractive eq and some compression/limiting.

    Not perfect but great still.

    Perfect sound and drumming style for fast hardcore metal-punk rock-ish stuff

    www.myspace.com/seventhhell - all the tracks on there (except the southern sludge demo) are recorded without the use of any sorta samples!!
